SEMA Preview: Mopar Jeep Wrangler Overland

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 15, 2009

If travel and adventure is your thing then the Jeep Wrangler Overland, modified by the Mopar design team, might just be for you (in case you didn't like the Mopar Jeep Lower Forty). The 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon got turned into a mobile "on-the-go" self-contained campsite.

For hauling gear, the cargo capacity was increased by replacing the rear seats with a large, flat, rubberized utility floor. An all-new ARB two-person Simpson II rooftop-mounted tent and touring awning is mounted to the cargo rack.

The interior was equipped with water-resistant Mopar front-seat covers, rugged Mopar slush mats, a Daystar dash bin and lower switch panel that powers added accessories.To improve the off-road experience, Mopar gave it an American Expedition Vehicles' (AEV), Nth Degree, 3-inch suspension lift and a Full Traction rear sway bar.

The lift allows aggressive 35-inch tires mounted on 17-inch steel Mopar winter/off-road wheels to fit under the Jeep. AEV steel bumpers add to off-road protection at the front and rear. For added security, a Warn 9.5ti winch was fitted.

The Jeep Wrangler Overland can also be highly useful in the desert since it is fitted with an AEV Jeep Wrangler heat-reduction hood and snorkel kit. Nighttime and off-road driving are made safer and easier with Mopar windshield-mounted off-road lights and Daystar bumper-mounted lights.
